State of Nature 2019 - Wales
/ Categories: IOL Wales

State of Nature 2019 - Wales

The State of Nature partnership consists of over 70 partners drawn from conservation NGOs, research institutes, and the UK and national governments. We have worked together to assess the state of the UK’s wildlife, and to understand this in light of the pressures on nature and the responses being made to recover our natural heritage.

The State of Nature 2019 report uses data collected by tens of thousands of expert volunteers. These data are analysed using rigorous statistical methods to report on the state of nature across the UK and in the UK’s Crown Dependencies and Overseas Territories, and at the scale of the UK’s constituent nations.

Prior to the 1970 baseline used by the State of Nature 2019, we know there was widespread loss and degradation of habitats across Wales, dating back many centuries, from which the country’s wildlife has not recovered.

Since 1970, pressure on Wales’ diverse landscapes and seascapes has resulted in both losses and gains for biodiversity; the State of Nature 2019 report shows that, on average, Wales’ wildlife has declined in recent decades.
